Ann Seaweed

Kwakwaka'wakw Nation
 
Ann Seaweed was born January 26, 1961 in Alert Bay, off the northern coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Her grandmother was a member of the Kwagiulth nation, while her grandfather was a member of the Salish nation. As the First Nations People go by matrilineal descent, she is considered Kwagiulth. The Kwagiulth nation inhabits the southern region of the mainland and the northeastern coast of Vancouver Island.

Ann takes the Sisiutl (double headed sea serpent), revered for its great strength, as her family crest. Alfred Seaweed, her husband and a jewelry carver himself, has greatly influenced her work through his teaching, which is evident in her style.

Ann has been making silver and gold jewelry since 1994, and became involved in making northwest coast native art in order to carry on the family tradition of carving. Presently, Ann carves on a part-time basis while she takes care of her family.
